I picked up this Ruger Standard (a pre-Mark I) .22lr semiauto and intended to clean it up. As you can see, it's been well-used. The previous owner also decided to make it into a CCW piece by lopping the barrel at about 2" length. Surprisingly, this gun is not as bad as it looks.
The cutting job was done cleanly, the gun was reblued, and the front sight was reattached. The gun is precise where it puts its bullets-- but I found accuracy is to the left and a little high. It was otherwise reliable.
So, what to do with this fellow? If you've got the time and the skills, I'd recrown the barrel and clean it up. A new blue job would do wonders, but if you're in a rush maybe a good park job would do. You could also just recrown the barrel and leave it as-is; it would make a quality but inexpensive tackle box or truck gun. If you're that good, why not rebarrel? Or, remove the upper and use this as a Clark Custom or an integral suppressor host!
The gun comes with one magazine that was repaired-- but repaired very well and is functional.
Anyhow, enough babbling. The cost is 149.95 and I'll eat shipping to your FFL to any legal state (including AK and HI). It comes in an aftermarket hard case. AZ residents may pick up or I'll ship to your FFL, but I have to collect the governor's cut of 6.6%.
